[Point cloud]

Point clouds are collidable, measurable and detectable objects. This means that point clouds:

  • can be used in collision detections with other collidable objects that are volume based, such as octrees.
  • can be used in minimum distance calculations with other measurable objects.
  • can be detected by proximity sensors.
  • Point clouds can be added to the scene with [Menu bar --> Add --> Point cloud], and edited via the point cloud properties.
